Rousseau, Jean‐Jacques (1712–78)


The two moments when Rousseau (1712–78) became most concerned with international relations are examined in this entry: 1743–44 when he served as secretary in the French embassy in Venice and in 1756 when he wrote a summary and a judgement of the Abbé de Saint‐Pierre's Project of perpetual peace. Both episodes contributed to his central thesis that international peace through law remains a utopian dream because states existed in a permanent state of war.
